  • QUOTES (12)

    • Artie: I wonder what it would cost to furnish our place like that?
      Jim: Artie, it's not the cost, it's the upkeep.

    • Artie: You're know, you're lucky you're sacred because you've got no talent at all.

    • Scullen: (seeing Akbar the white elephant) What is it?
      Jim: It's a big dog with a long nose.
      Scullen: Is that so? Well, from the color of it, I would have thought it was one of those hairless polar bears.

    • Artie: Where's Akbar?
      Jim: I'm going after him right now.
      Artie: Oh, you are, eh?
      Jim: That's right.
      Artie: Which leaves me of course to handle the really dirty end of the job, doesn't it?
      Jim: What are you talking about?
      Artie: It's facing his chubby highness when he comes to.
      Jim: Old friend, I can tell you this one thing. I'm so very very glad it's you and not me.

    • Mikolic: My queen, the circus is going bad. Let us get away from here, run away together.
      Zoe: Things are not that bad yet.

    • Jim: Next you're going to tell me to drop the knife, right?
      Scullen: Oh, you're a mind reader too, eh?
      Jim: If you had a mind to read.

    • Artie: How'd you like my coyote?
      Jim: That was a coyote?
      Artie: I had three answering calls from females proposing marriage.

    • Zoe: But unfortunately we have no job openings. We're a very small outfit. If we were any smaller, we'd be a flea circus.

    • Zoe: I am Zoe Zagora, queen of the Zagora Gypsy Circus. Sorceress, seeress, infallible reader of cards and tea leaves… and bail bond expert.

    • Mikolic: I give you one final chance to leave us. Everyone will know you are a coward, but at least you will have saved your life.
      Jim: Whenever I go to the theater, I like to stay for a full performance. I naturally want to know how it ends.
      Mikolic: It ends with a knife.

    • Artie: Oh, by the way, how you getting along with the gypsies?
      Jim: Oh, fine, I'm learning a lot. Here's your wallet, here's your watch.

    • Jim: Zoe, you must listen to me.
      Zoe: From you, I want to know only one thing: how could you prefer an elephant to me?
